Project - Average Frequency Hits Over a 24 Hour Period.

Over the past week (five business days) I have had a scanner logging all the hits on the 350 frequencies I have programmed in. I excluded weekends due to the fact that a number of business are closed and I didn't want this to impact the results. I record how many "hits" were logged per hour for five days and then averaged the result. This can be seen in the graph below.

My analysis:
In the early hours of the morning you get just under two hundred hits. Most business users are off the air then so this would mostly be the Tasmanian Fire Service, Ambulance Tasmania, some airband and UHF CB plus very limited business users.
Between 5am and 6am shows a massive jump as a number of users come on the air, this includes Tox FREE waste doing wheelie bin pickups and the Launceston City Council CBD street cleaning crews. Between 7am and 8am even more business users come on the air and the large amount of hits logged during this time would be due to staff preparing for businesses to open and people preparing for the day ahead. Metro busses are very active during this time period.
As the day progresses traffic stays steady with a noticeable drop around 12pm which I put down to lunch breaks. Logged hits start to drop off around 5pm and continue to drop off as the evening progresses.



Downer EDI Works Update

Last night while out driving I saw three Downer EDI Works trucks parked, on having a closer look I noticed no two way radio aerials on them. This might explain why their VHF frequencies have been dead for so long, it appears they are not using radios any more.

ALTUS Traffic Launceston

The last two Sundays while out driving I have seen that Zinfra have been upgrading the power lines on the main road near our house, both times I didn't have my scanners with me to find out what frequencies they were using for these works and traffic control.

Yesterday we were heading out for the morning so I made sure I had a scanner with me. Sure enough as we drove down the road I could see these works well underway. Switching on close call I logged ALTUS using UHF CB channel 13 (476.725MHz) for traffic control.

Update: 27/03/2017.
While out driving yesterday we had to stop at some road works, ALTUS were managing the traffic for this. Using Close Call I was able to confirm they were using 476.825MHz- UHF CB CHANNEL 17.

Below is a list of around 215 VHF / UHF frequencies which are licensed for use Tasmania wide. This is an export from the ACMA database which I have cleaned up and  made in to a usable format. 
Please note that these frequencies might get little or no use. I have marked in red those which I have logged active in the greater Launceston area in the past.

Program them in and see what you can hear. Use the contact form on the side to let me know what you hear.

Update on Officeworks

Back in September 2016, I confirmed Officeworks Launceston were using 462.100MHz for store communications as per this post: http://launcestonscanningguy.blogspot.com.au/2016/09/462100mhz-officeworks-launceston.html

Recently I have confirmed the DCS tone they use and have programmed this in. DCS is not as common here as CTCSS, you can read more about this here: http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/DCS

New ACMA Listing - Target Launceston and Mowbray

Today while searching the ACMA database, I have come across two new listings for both TARGET stores:

TARGET Launceston on 463.4MHz
https://web.acma.gov.au/rrl/assignment_search.lookup?pEFL_ID=2446117

TARGET Mowbray on 465.3125MHz

https://web.acma.gov.au/rrl/assignment_search.lookup?pEFL_ID=2457862

I suspect this will be for ear pieces, much like Kmart and Officeworks are now using. 
I have programmed these in to my scanners and will report if I hear any traffic on them.

Portable Scanning Session - Brady's Lookout - 10/3/2017

Today I had to drive down the West Tamar for work. On my way back I stopped at Brady's Lookout to have my lunch break. I spent about half an hour scanning and searching the bands at this location. I logged a wide range of frequencies which can be seen below. This location has the advantage of being high enough to allow reception of most Launceston frequencies, while being far enough away to stop overload and other RF problems. It has a good take off to the mainland which makes it a great location for hunting down main land frequencies when tropospheric ducting is around.

Below are my loggings, some photos and a video.

Set up at the main lookout, it was very hot sitting in the sun

After I had moved over to the shade

Setup at the BBQ shelter, it was much cooler here but being closer to the road made hearing the audio much harder

All packed up
